I would not put 2 Angel fish in a tank that small, they will kill each other. But, the others look good.

Yea, you can have those fish also. I'd have a big skimmer and or a huge sump to help clean up the nutrients that will be in there. But, go for it.

The Bangaii's might get aggressive and kill each other off until there are only two left. Or they might not because this is quite a large setup. The firefish WILL jump out of the tank. That is what they do. I think that in a 180 you can get away with two angels, since they are dwarfs and there is a lot of room.

I think that the powder blue and the naso tang are a bad idea. They are hard to keep fish that are very susceptible to disease and tend not to be the best eaters in captivity. I would probably steer clear of them myself and try the hardier species, such as a hippo tang.

Even if they've hanged together for years, theirs always a chance they will turn on each other and fight.

Powder Blue is a toughy to a degree, but not the Naso Tang. Those are pretty good once you get them acclimated.
